CANCELED: Lecture: Body, Ritual, and Cosmology on Daoist Robes

Xiaofei Kang, associate professor, GW Department of Religion

This program has been canceled, but we hope you can join us for another Textiles at Twelve program, including films, lectures, gallery talks, and more. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Dragons, phoenixes, and other creatures are skillfully embroidered into a cosmological map on a Daoist’s priest’s robe displayed in the museum’s lower-level galleries. GW Associate Professor Xiaofei Kang will explore the Daoist body, practices, and cosmology through careful examination of the motifs in this elaborate example.
